Dissertation theme: How to connect people with the environment
Short summary: By 2050 nearly 70% of the world's population will live in cities, but they need to stay connected to nature - for the environment & their health.
Detailed summary: I want to study the connection between people and nature. The importance of parks and green spaces in cities that help give nature a home and bring us back to our roots. The psychological and educational benefits of having a green space for all ages, and urban problems that can be solved with trees and parks - air pollution, urban heat islands, sound pollution, even shanty towns and flooding.
